Good soil makes for good food plots, and good soil comes from doing a soil sample!
While you might be able to have success with a food plot just throwing seed on the ground and hoping for the best, more often than not that strategy will underperform. If you really want to make sure you are maxing out the potential of your food plot, and that your plot is delivering the important nutrients deer need, you really need to make sure you are getting a soil sample done.
Soil samples aren't difficult to do, nor are they expensive. You're about to invest money in seed and a hunting season, why not spend $10 on a soil sample to make sure you're giving yourself the best chance to succeed? Josh explains what the soil sample is going to tell you, which types of plots stress which nutrients in the soil, and how to take a sample so you can be sure you have an accurate representation of your plot soil.
